Global Energy Efficiency Accelerator Platform

Doubling the global rate of improvement in energy efficiency by 2030 is an underlying target of Sustainable Development Goal 7 (SDG7).

In 2014, Sustainable Energy for All (SEforALL) launched the Global Energy Efficiency Accelerator Platform to help realize this objective. It does so by driving action and commitments by national and sub-national leaders at the country, city, state, region or sector level. The platform defines common elements between each of its accelerators, such as governance, performance metrics, reporting requirements, commitment management, policies, resources and tools as well as public and private sector financial support.

The individual accelerators focus on specific energy efficiency sectors such as buildings, lighting, appliances, district energy systems, industry and transportation.
